Our Single Axis Soil Mixing, typically referred to in the industry as Deep Soil Mixing (DSM), utilizes mechanical mixing tools to shear the soil in situ and mix it with a cementitious slurry pumped at low pressure. This method has the ability to create large soil mix columns, typically 2.5 to 9 feet in diameter, to depths of up to approximately 80 feet.Deep Soil Mixing is a very economical system for mass ground improvement projects. DSM is used to provide settlement control and increased bearing capacity in soft soils. The ability to create large diameter soil mix columns also makes it well suited to mitigate the effects of liquefaction induced settlements and lateral spreading.
DSM is also the soil mixing method of choice for in situ remediation and encapsulation of contaminated soils and for the construction of Permeable Reactive Barrier (PRB) walls.
Benefits of Deep Soil Mixing
- Efficient and cost effective method to mix large volumes of soil
- Creates large ground improvement columns, typically from 2.5 to 9 feet in diameter, that can be used for increasing bearing capacity and controlling static and seismic-induced settlements
- Jet mixing uses high pressure combined with mechanical mixing to construct high quality soil cement columns that can be used as individual elements or as overlapping secant soil mix piles for shoring applications
